When you're looking for stuff to do on holiday, the travel industry typically sorts them by categories like shopping or outdoors.

But, we think about travel differently, like "today I want to do something adventurous" or "tomorrow I want to take it easy."

What we're actually doing is unconsciously planning our holidays another way entirely, by pace.

The Discovery Dial lets travellers explore Japan in a new way. A single dial controls the interface and filters experiences from slow to fast, changing how you plan your next adventure.
